Staying Safe While Voting (0:00:00) Election Day is just around the corner! Have you voted by mail or are you gearing up to get in line at the polls? Well thanks to COVID, many people are concerned about the health risks involved with in-person voting. Here to talk to us about what we can do to make voting a safe and enjoyable experience is Dr. Joseph Khabbaza, a pulmonary medicine doctor with Cleveland Clinic. Halloween Strategies for Safety and Fun (0:35:41) Crazy as it seems, we’re approaching Halloween (and that’s my only rhyme for the morning)! It seems like quarantine started, I blinked, and now it’s almost Halloween night! Now, I don’t know about you, but Halloween is one of my favorites holidays—the costumes, the jump-scares, and (most importantly) the candy. However, as fun as Halloween is, there are definitely some important precautions to be taken when preparing for Halloween—especially this year. Here to discuss as how to safely celebrate Halloween and some trick or treating alternatives is friend of the show, Carrie Ann Rhodes. Mentoring Women from Prison (0:52:41) What if you could literally change someone’s life for the better? Not only would that be an amazing accomplishment, but think of the relationship you would build with them. Today we wanted to talk about a service opportunity that would allow you to do just that. Shannon Cox is the Executive Director for Journey of Hope, an organization that partners volunteers with women who are transitioning out of prison to help them learn how to change their lives so they can have success. Managing Screen-time (1:13:32) The integration of technology into our lives is on the rise. Not only is it hard to keep up with the ever-evolving tech, but it also seems impossible to manage our time on and off our devices. We’re consumed by our phones, social media, music, and TV as we continually strive to be more productive and efficient. Technology has found its way into our kid’s hands as well. But what’s concerning is that kids don’t have as much self-control as adults, and many parents wonder if it’s possible to manage screen time in a tech-driven world. Here with us to help answer that question is Arlene Pellicane, author and speaker, to help us understand how our kids can navigate a tech-driven world. How COVID is Affecting Women in Business (1:27:54) As we’ve discussed on the show before, women wear many hats. Mothers, sisters, employees, bosses, teachers, friends, neighbors and more. With the pandemic, many have been forced to fill new roles that they hadn’t experienced before. And this, as many women have experienced, spreads them thin. For example, working mothers are now their kids’ teachers at home. And some stay-at-home mothers are having to find work or start side businesses to ease financial strain. But what affect does this have on women? And how can they find flexibility and balance in the many roles they juggle without falling behind? Here to shed greater light on the situation, as well as offer advice is Jennifer Mackin, CEO and leadership development influencer.
